Avraham’s nephew, Lot, was still living in Sodom. Thanks to Uncle Avraham he had sure learned a thing or two about doing good deeds.
One day, as Lot was sitting by the gate of Sodom, he noticed 2 weary-looking travelers entering the city, so he decided to do a Mitzvah.
“Please, gentlemen. Come to my house for a meal. Stay the night and rest before you continue on your way,” Lot begged the strangers.
However, this was absolutely unheard of in the city of Sodom. Inviting guests was AGAINST THE LAW!
